One of the first 2-in-1's on Baytrail architecture. It's a lightweight product with a very usable tablet section. With the price at $345 (32GB at launch. $399 for 64GB storage) it could be a very attractive and highly dynamic tablet/PC combo.

ASUS T100 Alternatives

Based on weight, screen-size and form-factor.
Lenovo Miix 3 10, 10.1", 549gm
The Lenovo MIIX 3-1030 is the model with the soft case / keyboard. There appears to be a different model which includes a hard keyboard as the Miix 2 10 did. Lenovo are pitching the Miix 3 10 at a slightly lower pricepoint to the previous Miix 2 10 but it still includes a Full HD display. There's no full-size USB port and no compass though. We expect pricing to drop a little below the $299/?299 RRP so watch out for offers.
MSI S100, 10.1", 595gm
This lightweight 2-in-1 offers good storage for the price but a low resolution screen. The MSI S100 has 6 hours battery life and a good selection of ports for the price and includes a 1-year Office 365 / 1TB One Drive license. Portable and capable of more than a standalone tablet out-of-the-box.
ASUS Transformer Book T100 Chi, 10.1", 570gm
The ASUS Transformer Book T100 Chi is a dockable tablet based on Intel's Baytrail Atom Z3775 processor. It comes with a keyboard dock for a better writing experience. Built-in storage comes in two flavours, either 32 or 64 GB of eMMC, however you get one year of 1TB OneDrive Storage. The 30Wh battery has a proclaimed runtime of up to 10 hours. In terms of ports it offers a microUSB 3.0, a microUSB 2.0, MicroHDMI and a microSD card slot.
Toshiba Satellite Click Mini, 8.9", 450gm
The Toshiba Satellite Click Mini offers a lot of battery life and screen resolution for the money and unlike the ASUS Transformer Book T90 Chi (also launched at CES 2015) is has an SD card slot and USB port in the keyboard and an HDMI output on the tablet. With a quoted 16 hours of video playback time this could be the long-distance travellers dream come true.
HP Pavilion X2 10, 10.1", 550gm
The HP Pavilion X2 10 is a Windows 8.1 dockable tablet running on Intels energy efficient Atom Z3736F processor, allowing for a fanless design. 550g for the tablet and 870g combined with the keyboard isn't too bad at all. Unfortunately HP left out the 5GHz spectrum for the WiFi functionalities, so b/g/n is what you are limited to with the Pavilion X2 10. The detachable keyboard also features a multitouch touchpad for accurate navigation.
Lenovo Thinkpad 10 Tablet, 10.0", 598gm
The Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 10 is powered by Intels Baytrail platform. It offers a Battery life of up to 10hrs. Its 10 point multi touch Full HD Touchscreen features an IPS Panel. With Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi b/g/n and optional NFC with 4G modem it brings some good connection options. In terms of ports there is microHDMI, microSD, audio jack and only one USB 2.0 port. We would have liked to see USB 3.0 being used here.
Acer Aspire Switch 10, 10.1", 585gm
The Acer Aspire Switch 10 offers 2-in-1 tablet/laptop Windows 8.1 at a very low price. The product competes with the ASUS Transformer Book T100 well and offers multiple 'modes' via the flexible magnetic hinge. Screen resolution is a relatively basic 1366x768 and there's no additional battery in the keyboard but as a consumer-focused dual-mode PC/Tablet the Aspire Switch 10 will offer good value in creation and consumption activities.
Lenovo Miix 2 10, 10.1", 589gm
The Lenovo Miix 2 10 looks to be the perfect travellers mobile laptop. Lightweight with good battery life (8hrs quoted) and all in a nice-looking and flexible multimode package. $499 launch price won't include 3G/4G but at least there's an option.
Fujitsu Stylistic Q584, 10.1", 640gm
Clearly aimed at business markets but offering some ofthe best specifications we've seen on the first wave of Baytrail tablets. 4G, 640gm, IGZO 2650x1600 screen, Digitizer and a built-in 38Wh battery are all high-end.
Acer Iconia W510 , 10.1", 576gm
The Acer Iconia W510 is a Transformer-style hybrid. It features a 10.1″ screen, 8.9mm thickness, 576 grams (w/o keyboard) and 32GB or 64GB of storage. The tablet has a SIM slot, microSD, micro-USB, and HDMI (unspecified connector type), as well as volume buttons, a microphone, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Keyboard dock is optional and doubles as an extra battery providing up to 18 hours of batter life.
